Aune, whose thematic focus is on the interpretation of the Gospels, Gospels and tradition of Paul's letters. In most of the essays, the author focuses on the exegesis particularly problematic passages in the Gospels, Acts and the epistles of Paul. In some texts he deals with the anthropology of Paul, in others he examines the phenomenon of oral tradition in the ancient world and in the Gospels or treated the problem of the genre of the Gospels (Mark and Matthew) and Roman letters. It reviews the latest research approaches to justification by faith in Paul and examines the importance of euaggelion in the headings of the Gospels. In addition, David E.
